Many were wondering why Ashton Kutcher waited 12 months to file for divorce from Demi Moore.
And on Saturday it was suggested that Demi Moore was the one holding up the legal proceedings as she wants a settlement similar to that from first husband Bruce Willis.
TMZ report: “The sticking point in the divorce has been that Demi wanted the same type of settlement from Ashton that she go from Bruce Willis.”
Although Bruce Willis and Demi Moore never revealed their settlement it is thought to have been a large amount.
This theory is just one floating around after Ashton Kutcher waited so long to file for divorce.
At one point, the delay sparked tabloid speculation the pair were never legally married. There were also rumors they were locked in a bitter battle over their huge fortune.
Ashton Kutcher, 34, filed the papers Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences, according to People magazine.
Ashton Kutcher, who is now dating Mila Kunis, isn’t seeking spousal support nor is he asking the court to deny 50-year-old Demi Moore any.
He has hired divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to represent him.
Laura Wasser has previously worked for high-profile clients including Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum and Angelina Jolie.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s six year marriage came to an end amid claims he had an affair with 22-year-old San Diego-based administrative assistant Sara Leal.
While Ashton Kutcher moved on with 29-year-old Mila Kunis in July, Demi Moore struggled to cope with the split.
She entered rehab in February soon after collapsing at her Beverly Hills home.
Her relationship with her three daughters with ex-husband Bruce Willis’ – Rumer, 24, Scout, 21, and Tallulah, 18, – has also come under strain this year.
Sources say they have grown tired of her constant partying and erratic behavior.
The girls had initially supported their mother following her divorce from Ashton Kutcher because they believed she was “distraught” but were allegedly “mortified” when she started going out with one of Rumer’s friends Vito Schnabel recently.
But Demi Moore was dumped by the 26-year-old toyboy earlier this month after she enjoyed a week of wild partying at Art Basel in Miami.
Ashton Kutcher is currently one of the highest paid star on TV and earns $700,000 per episode. He is estimated to be worth around $140 million.
While Demi Moore’s career has slowed down, she earned big money during the peak of her career.
The actress, whose films include A Few Good Men and Indecent Proposal, is estimated to be worth around $150 million.
